I don’t like the fact that it says no divine intervention necessary. Its precisely because of divine intervention that I got the holy roller thing to begin with LOL. Just clueless ain’t they?

How the Decalogue is counted is dependent upon if you are a Jew, a Catholic or a Protestant.

It's Hebrew so #1 is at the upper right; and the commandments are abbreviated for artistic purposes. For example the Hebrew for #4 about the sabbath just says "Remember." (The second word has no English translation.)

I'm a Presbyterian PCA member

The commandments all go all the way into the heart and mind. Jesus said if you looked with lust at a woman, you have committed adultery. If you have thought murderous thoughts, you have committed murder and so forth.

The purpose of the commandments then is to show bad sin is and how far we fall from Holiness. The Apostle Paul says that the Law is a Taskmaster to drive us to Christ.

And that is exactly what the 10 Commandments do.

Thus the little questionnaire afterwords was extremely superficial "I haven't killed anyone", whereas the proper use of the commandments convicts somewhere every time and drives us in confession, repentance and ultimately cleansing by a Faithful God.

Yes, I am absolutely willing to concede precedence in this matter (and many others) to those that wrote it and cherished it for thousands of years before we Christians got ahold of it.

The first part (picking out the ten) is awesome, if only for all the wannabe commandments.

The second part (matching behaviors to commandments) is horribly weak on wording.

Recieved it from God, and then wrote it down. The actual writing was done by human hands. God didn’t just hand over a manuscript. That is what I meant by “wrote it”.

Exodus 32:15-16 (NIV):
Moses turned and went down the mountain with the two tablets of the Testimony in his hands. They were inscribed on both sides, front and back. The tablets were the work of God; the writing was the writing of God, engraved on the tablets.

So, is it, “You shall not murder” or “You shall not kill”? These are two very different things.

I was speaking of the entirety of the Torah, not the tablets that Moses brought down from Mt. Sinai.

Why do they always misrepresent Thou Shalt Not MURDER as Thou Shalt Not KILL? There is a difference between the two.

Hebrew word “ratsah” should be rendered “murder.” This root refers only to criminal acts of killing.

How is that a commandment? It’s a declaration.

Thank you for verifying what I always thought to be correct. I always understood it to mean murder, even though many say it means kill.

"Ten commandments" is an English idea. The Torah says, "Atzeret debrot" which is probably the genesis of the phrase, but these words are usually translated as "ten words." The Torah actually contains 613 commandments.

Passing or fleeting on these thoughts are not sinful; dwelling on them is.

Why do you say that? I take the statement at face value and it is correct. There is a clear difference between kill and murder.

Killing was necessary to put meat on the table. Sometimes in law enforcement and in self-defense killing is necessary. Just warfare involves killing. These killings are not sin - not against the sixth commandment.

The test said “killing” was never allowed.

I agree that murder is never allowed, but there IS a time for killing, just as you stated. Obviously I failed that question on their test. But certainly I did not fail in understanding of God’s word.

Question #6 YOU SHALL NOT KILL

1 - I’d never kill another person (this was the “correct” answer according to the testers)

2 There are circumstances when killing is okay (this is actually the correct answer - the way I answered the question)

3. Killing is just another part of living (fail)

Yes, but IMO, even though killing is not the sin of murder, there is a loss of holiness that accompanies killing.

King David told his son Solomon:
